SusWoT Themes

SusWoT is a member-led organisation and our projects reflect what those people want to pursue at any given time. Over the years, some have flourished, some have come to a point of maturity or completion and others are no longer active. These projects have tended to cluster around a small number of themes, though this list is not intended to limit any future possibilities.

Growing and Food

  • Get Growing – each year we raise and sell many vegetable seedlings for people to grow on at home.
  • Eat WoT U Grow – in the autumn we stage a 3 course meal for 60 people freshly cooked by a professional chef from locally grown ingredients

Past projects

  • Stoke Lane Community Garden – SusWoT supported the creation and funding of the community garden behid the Stoke Lane shops which is now well-established and self-sufficient.
  • Local Produce Market – we ran a local produce market one Saturday morning each month in the car park of the doctors’ surgery
  • Wormeries – we obtained a number of wormeries with support from the Neighbourhood Partnership to offer at subsidised rates to local people enabling them to compost all of their domestic foodwaste into nutritious compost.

Using Less

  • CHEESE – we support and promote an organisation that has developed thermal imaging technology to detect heat loss in homes to enable householders to take simple, cheap actions to improve their energy efficiency.


  • Badock’s Wood – we have helped to support the Friends of Badock’s Wood in their efforts to develop the nature reserve.

Local Community

  • Litter picking –  on the last Sunday in each month around the area
  • Local fairs – we participate in various local fairs and events
  • Planning – we take an interest in local planning issues
